Or don’t donate anything, and pay no tax!  Sorry, I know this is a non 
political thread (unless you view Apple vs Android as a political culture war). 
 But I am struck that it was a scandal that Mitt Romney only paid 14% income 
tax, giving him no credit for tithing to his church (and don’t forget the 
charity boxing match!)  Yet now we have someone who apparently does neither, 
and he’s a genius.


Meanwhile, I’ve got an old vehicle to donate, and am wondering if those 
cars-for-kids deals are for real or just scams.  Maybe better to just take it 
to the auto wrecker and then donate the cash?

I use this tax strategy years ago and it enabled me to donate more money and 
pay less tax.

Thanks for the tips! AAPL may be a good buy right now but not a steal
